About Us

Review of Bioethics is a peer-reviewed e-journal, which hosts interdisciplinary research  exploring the interplay between  (bio)science and ethics. It focuses on the normative investigation and critical assessment of ethical and social challenges fostered by bio-scientific and bio-technological advances. Research and high-quality scholarship in bioethics are promoted, while specific areas of focus include theoretical approaches to bioethical reasoning and the normative framework of bioethics, clinical bioethics, environmental ethics, research ethics, global justice as regards the acquisition and allocation of medical technologies, bioethical issues in public policy, law, media practices and education. The journal also supports educational efforts to bring theoretical argument and critique to bear on public discourse and raise public awareness, by shedding light on major ethical dilemmas confronting social agency in the era of bio-technology.
